Hi All

I passed my PMP exam this morning at my first sitting. All the hard work and effort paid off.

I do have a question however as I am confused with the summary report given to me at the end. I was above target in 2 domains and 1 domain it says - Needs Improvement? I was under the impression that would have been an automatic failure?

Has anyone else got this? Not sure if I am being over critical of myself or PMI said I passed and I haven't my paranoia has kicked in!

Please advise

First, congratulations!

Next, bear in mind that Pass/Fail is based on the overall score of the entire exam, not how well you did in any individual Domain. The Domains are not weighted equally: People = 42%, Process = 50% and Business Environment = 8%. That means if you hit a "needs improvement" in the Business Environment Domain, you did well enough in each of the others to make an overall "Pass."

Hope this makes sense!

Hi Harry,

Thank you so much for clarifying. My understanding was clearly incorrect.

Overall I felt the exam went well and was happy when I saw the 'Congratulations' message at the end :-)

Good luck to all those due to take it, I didn't perform as well in my mock exams which were the Prepcast ones. However today I restored my confidence and self belief and managed to Pass. If I can do it anyone can!

Kind Regards,
